Hopefully you have a great agent to help you in determining what is best for you. When my buyers have chosen a property they are really interested in I supply them with all the information request, much like a market analysis that I would give a seller.. As far as neighborhoods are concerned, you can go to my website; http://www.marilynorcutt.com, click on about the area; links; crimeview. You'll be able to look at Las Vegas, Henderson and North Las Vegas and determine if you are comfortable with the property you are looking at. I would suggest that you compare it with other locations, for instance the area you presently live. . Remember, where a person is comfortable is individual to them. The second thing that will help you determine if it is the right area is by driving around and looking at the neighborhood. I'd be happy to help you find that special home if you are not presently working with someone.

the safety of the neighborhood you should get that information from the police dept.
I recomend my buyers to drive around the property at different times and days so they can get a idea.
